Slice of heaven
It is hard to describe just what an amazing experience we had in our three nights at Blue Apple. The resort is quite simply one that you must experience yourselves. The property is beautiful, so well maintained and cared for. Our room was exceptional, with a small plunge pool for our private use as a bonus! It had all the amenities of a traditional hotel as well, like TV and aircon, but to be honest we didn't spend too much time there as we were out enjoying everything else the resort had to offer! The pool can get busy at times, but over the four total days we were there I'd say it was fairly quiet most of the time and, if it is too busy for you, the beach cabanas are beautiful spots. The best part of the stay, however, were the staff. Such awesome people, who looked after us so well, and we were sad to say goodbye to when we left. Special shout out to Yao, Jorge, Garo, and Antonio, who took great care of us over there. We were sad to have to leave the island, but look forward to hopefully coming back someday soon to visit.

Blue Apple is a truly special place, tucked away on an island 20 minutes from Cartagena. Even though it is in an area with a lot of other resorts, its private cove and geographic location make you feel like you're completely isolated. The staff made us feel incredibly cared for, and the mission (they are fully sustainable, with their own farm, solar panel setup for energy, etc.) is authentic and beautifully communicated to guests. Food is DELICIOUS, all incredibly fresh and prepared to order for each meal. The pool and bar area are also delightful -- we were there during a slower season so there weren't many people there, which made it feel even more special. If you're looking for that perfect place to stay for a few nights to escape, this is the spot you're looking for.

6/10 Good

This is a nice resort but it’s grossly over priced. For what we paid for our hotel night and meals, could easily have gotten us a week elsewhere in central or South America. The food is good though! We really enjoyed that. Oh and the cost of our room didn’t include the boat transfer which, by the price we paid we assumed it would have. Everything was always extra. Couldn’t hang out on the beach either. Vendors constantly harassing you which doesn’t make for a relaxing time.

Little paradise a brief 25 min boat ride away from bustling Cartagena. Everything, from amenities to service approach, is so well thought through. Delicious food and drinks, prompt and subtle service, comfortable and stylish rooms, good music (only during the day), environmental friendly operations (THANK YOU!!!). What else can one wish for in a perfect getaway? We fell in love with the place and will definitely be back. <3

My girlfriend and I had a short stay here for just one night. Blue Apple deserves top reviews for their service and communication! Everything was made easy from arranging transport, ordering food and drinks, to room service via messenger. The staff was very friendly upon our arrival and throughout our stay. When we arrived, tourists were leaving the island so we got to enjoy a nice, quiet and romantic sunset with great drinks and food. The room itself was very large and the outdoor shower and tub plus the personal pool (not really private) were all a nice touch. My only complaint was our bedding had stains on it. By the time we went to turn in for the night it was very late and we also had to get up early so we just ended up sleeping over the bedding with what we brought. If we had more time and it was earlier I'm sure they would have addressed this. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Cartagena!
